  • After many years I visited the Gold Museum in Tankavaara again. I was very overwhelmed. Where there used to be only a few small huts, there is now a large concrete building in which, in addition to diverse descriptions and exhibition objects, the hardship of the search for gold is brought closer. The search for gold is also displayed worldwide on a large part of the exhibition ( Switzerland and Germany are also represented ) The descriptions are consistently in Finnish and English. Really recommended !

  • I didn't enter the museum, but I wandered around the site. They were preparing for the world gold gold-making championships. There are reconstructions of gold-seekers' houses and there is an opportunity to look for some. A pretty nice bridge on the disused railway track.

  • Love the old fashion golddigging/cowboy style and the people is so nice. The prospectorburger is the best in the world!!!
  • Although the water is very cold when you are having the finding gold experience, but it's fun and interesting. Have restaurant around with nice food.
